I'm calling 911--people are hijacking this otherwise very cool thread!! Enough of the sports talk, you all need to get back to favorite Garcia quotes! Quite a few of these I had either not heard or forgotten about, and yes, he was a truly cool cat! Like the publisher of Rolling Stone said, Garcia was one of the few truly articulate rock stars he ever interviewed. I'm sure I'm not paraphrasing what he said correctly, but I think that was the gist of it.

It's crazy how much I still miss Jerry (RIP) . . .

Articulate? Yes. But he had other qualities commented on by journalists:


Excerpt: This interview with Jerry Garcia's love for acoustic guitars was conducted during the spring of 1985. From the moment he walked into his living room, it was apparent that Garcia was in physically bad shape. His prodigious body odor preceded him by the room’s length, and his beard and dirty black t-shirt were dusted with white powder. Fingers on both hands were blackened from their tips to the second knuckle. (Just four days later, Garcia was arrested in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park for smoking heroin in his parked car, a habit which likely accounted for the tar-stained fingers.) A few minutes into our conversation, Jerry toked on a joint of sensemilla and then fished a large rock of cocaine from his pocket. He chopped it into several rough rails, bent over, and snorted the whole thing without missing a beat of our conversation. Despite the drugs, Garcia proved to be both intense and articulate. He locked eyes throughout the interview, spoke quickly and seldom looked away.

one of my favorites; "But hey, when you live in Watts, you need a little smack to get by, you know what I mean? You need something soft and comfortable in your life, 'cause you're not going to get it from what's around you. And society isn't going to give it to you"
